Question: A bit of advice is greatly needed!!

This is my 1st time on this site but it appears their are some sharp folks here and I hope I can get some ideas on how to fix my Sequoia. I bought a 2004 Sequoia Limited from and auto auction yesterday. Got it really cheap. It was a stolen recovery vehicle. From what I've found so far, the ECU under the glove box was stolen and the vehicle has NO KEYS at all to start the vehicle or unlock the steering wheel. A few of the trim pcs by the console where the mirror switches and heated seat buttoms go was also torn up. I don't see anything missing by the console however. My 2 questions are (1) What will be the easiest and cheapest way to get the keys and a remote for this vehicle set up as I have zip for keys now? (2) Whats the easiest way to get a ECU for this car without going with a brand new one? (3) Back to the keys...can the dealer program them without having the car sitting in frt of him? I can't start this veh. , of course, and didn't want to pay another towing bill to get it to my dealer 45 miles away. Any ideas are really appreciated!

You can have keys cut and programed by the dealer and maybe by a good locksmith if you have one in your area.

You may need the car at the dealer to program them to the anti theft immobilizer.

The ecu you can probably get the best deal on from a salvage yard. Just make sure it's a perfect match to your VIN

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
